Rocky's visit to the vet went pretty well this morning. The vet did blood work and said for us to call between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. tomorrow to get the results. He said if he was us he would go ahead and continue to treat this as idiopathic seizures. He said we could spend a ton of money to try and find the cause, but that we couldn't "cure" the seizures, only control them. He said since Rocky is currently on such a high dosage of the phenobarbitol that he may consider treatment with potassium bromide. He also discovered he had a slight ear infection and gave us medication for that. He gave him a steroid shot to help calm his nerves. He said since he had so many seizures yesterday that his nerves were tied in knots and that could bring on more seizures and that the steroid would help that. He seemed much better when I saw him at noon. Paws and fingers crossed his tests all come back good and that the new medication will do the trick.
